Wife's Bowl Mothers Day Gift


My First Walnut turning . Walnut /Maple . This pushed the Limit of my lathe . I glued the lower 4 layers and turned that , my glue up was a little off center.I traced that back to Waste face plate ,it did’nt glue up snug I added the second section the top 4 layers with feature Ring ( Mistake ) I should have added 1 ring at a time and rough turned each 1 , it worked the motor Hard and Shook the World, but things smoothed out . this is my 9 th Bowl 10 inches width , 9 1/2 inches height . What a Lesson … I really liked turning Walnut , it was easier than I thought it would be.


Great pattern. It never ceases to amaze me how much work you turners have to do before you can even attach the piece to the lathe. Great job.

Yes very beautiful. Yeah all the work before you can trun is crazy. And how precise you have to be. Nicly done!
